Beet Root and Apple Raita

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by awalde

This fresh and light salad is inspired by the apple season and our holidays in India. Cumin, coriander, black mustard and pomegranate syrup give to this plate an exotic note.

Top Review by COOKGIRl

Adding the ground spices seems redundant. I would add either whole or ground but not both and my first choice would be the whole spices (which were lightly crushed in a pestle and mortar). A big change I made in this recipe was using raw beets and they were of excellent quality, locally grown organic ones and small. Served over mixed greens and has a wonderful taste although messy to prepare. Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Veg Tag January.
